How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
The bloggosphere was abuzz with Eve’s apparent surprise at finding serious, deep, and lasting love with a white guy, while in virtually in the same breath complaining how it’s 2012 and people should stop making such a big deal about interracial relationships.
A surprising cure for holiday depression!!
He calls himself, “YoungTeach” because yes, at 26, he’s young, and works as a music teacher to a predominately African American student body in Tennessee. He’s a newbie to interracial dating, and apparently read SWIRLING in two days. I love him already.
I’m a bit bleary eyed tonight. The Boy had us up all night with intermittent bouts of vomiting. But I couldn’t let another day pass without saying how good it was to see my girls in Washington D.C. for our “Election Decompression” event. The place was packed (always a complement) but I loved seeing my crew!
From “Paul in Oakland”l–”From a personal perspective, I have recently looked beyond myth and stereotype and have discovered that BW are incredible, remarkable and beautiful. Yet, as a group, BW are too often physically abused, disrespected, socially limited and under-appreciated. Beauty is meant to be appreciated. It is a crime the beauty of BW has been made socially invisible to a large segment of our culture — and even to them. To the extent I failed to perceive this beauty in the past, my bad.”
Is Hollywood finally listening to the concerns of black women and how their image is portrayed in the media? “Django Unchained” releases a second video that give Kerry Washington more character depth.
I have some AMAZING news! My buddy and person I want to be when I grow up, Sophia Angeli Nelson, political pundit and kick-arse writer of Black Woman Redefined will be joining us for our “Election Decompression” event on November 7th!
I keep telling all of you who seek the online/offline hybrid, you NEED to join a local MeetUp.com interracial dating group in your area. If there isn’t one, start one! That’s what Jena, the organizer of “Sisters with White Misters” did. I’ll admit I giggled a bit about the name, but everything about this group is top notch.
all I can say is there is truly no place on the planet like San Francisco–which is why is topped the list in Swirling as some of the most swirl-friendly cities in America. You can truly just BE who you ARE, and LOVE who you LOVE with absolutely no judgement for anyone.
Republican, Democrat, liberal and conservative alike are invited to celebrate the ending of a soap-operatic election season. We’re going to have a discussion (in perhaps, a drunken stupor) about how personal politics can play a role in interracial dating, and attack some of the misconceptions and stereotypes some people have about dating a conservative or liberal.
According to InterracialDating.com, 10 of the top 20 states in most demand for online interracial dating services are historically red states.
I need to call Deborrah Cooper…
Besides completely selling out of books, a couple things happened that reinforced the necessity for me to continue to nag young college girls to maximize ALL their dating options and not just hang out in the dorms painting each other’s toenails on Friday night. Also had a poignant moment with a black father who is struggling with the possibility of having a non-black son-in law.
Come for Swirling! Come for (LOTS) of eye candy! Come because you don’t have any thing else better to do on a Saturday night!
Remember Josh, the shy guy I mentioned on my Atlanta recap post yesterday would spotted a gorgeous girl who came to our event who never dated interracially? Well, she must have made quite an impression.
My Atlanta trip was probably one of the BEST, no…it was THE BEST trip on the SWIRLING book tour thus far. I got to go to the CNN center NOT as a tourist, but as a guest with a tag and everything! The interview with Natasha Curry was awesome sauce, and she’s so unbelievably down to earth. Turns out Natasha is a product of an interracial union (dad black, mom white) and is married to a white rainbeau, which explains her enthusiasm for all things Swirling.
Yesterday was awesome-sauce. Atlanta was a success all around, and “SWIRLING” to CNN by storm. It was cool that host, Natasha Curry, a product of the black/white union with a white rainbeau of her own, was so geeked up about the book. She’s so super cute and down to earth–we’re looking at pictures of my kiddos in that shot.
Whoever comes up with the best and most usable idea the we use as the theme will win a free SWIRLING t-shirt, a FREE month membership with online dating site, DateWhoYouWant.com, and a $40 Visa gift card.
If you don’t live in Atlanta, I’m so sorry you’ll be missing this. Because on September 28, we’re holding a NEKKID discussion about what relationship issues specifically plague African American women in Atlanta. The topics are so juicy you’ll temporarily reconsider your slavishness to the “Real Housewives” franchise. Sponsored by ONYX and DateWhoYouWant.com, we’ll tackle the following issues:
